The Musical Explorers program from Carnegie Hall.
Musical Explorers is a curriculum from Carnegie Halls Weill Music Institute (WMI) advised for children between the ages of four and eight. Its been utilized in classrooms throughout New York City and the rest of the world, but now those behind the program have adjusted their classroom curriculum for households with kids to use in your home.
Sure, it still takes “practice, practice, practice” to get to Carnegie Hall (plus herd immunity that will permit the location to resume), but for now, this is the next best thing.
The aim of the program is to connect kids “to rich and diverse musical communities as they build fundamental music skills through listening, singing, and relocating to tunes from all over the world,” according to its website.

A totally free set of online music education lessons and materials is presently readily available, courtesy of none other than the famous Carnegie Hall. Heres how to access them.
